Projects

Raise Fund To Save Water

Water is an essential part of living. Water plays a very vital role in ensuring an equal, sustained, and viable productive economy.

EDUCATIONAL SUPPORT PROGRAM

It should come as no surprise that rural school children are the most deprived of socioeconomic lives especially when it comes to having quality education and this is basically due to poverty and Neglect.

Many parents do not understand the value of Education as well. And even the ones who agree to send their children to school barely have the funds to sustain them through.

There is a call for urgent attention as rural schools have been left for doom for too long as they rarely have inexperienced teachers. They also suffer a lack of enough teachers for the number of children enrolled in the school.

HEALTH SUPPORT PROGRAM


Free Medical outreaches to rural villages/communities which include simple medical tests like Eye test, Dental test, Sugar level, BP tests etc Give Free Drugs, Wheel Chairs to help the disabled. We also visit the hospitals to assist the poor in payment of their bills

YOUTH EMPOWERMENT PROGRAM


Youths are empowered through seminars and vocational training to help them make a living ad take them off the street

WIDOW- WOMEN EMPOWERMENT PROGRAM

Caleb Baek
Ambassador & Strategic Development Officer

The Ambassador of Igniting Hope for the Less Privileged Initiative (NGO) to the United Nations.

He played a major role in applying and obtaining approval of a consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) for the NGO.

He is currently attending Academy of the Canyons in California, United States.

He was previously the Junior Ambassador of Malaysia through the YES Abroad Program by the US Department of Education.

After discovering the hardships of what the children and widows in Nigeria are experiencing, he seeks to bring help and support to the underprivileged children and financially struggling widows.

Since 2021, the organization was unknown and had no recognition to people, which resulted in low acknowledgement and low participation from international donors. Through research, he discovered the best way to gain international recognition was receiving credentials from the United Nations.

After more than two years of the UN ECOSOC committee’s review, he was able to gain approval from the board hearing in the summer of 2023.

As an Ambassador, his job is to advocate the economic inequalities spread amongst the youth and women in Nigeria and to reach out to various organizations in the United States regarding fundraisers and awareness of this glaring issue.
